New Volunteers: Orientation Sunday, August 24

To avoid possible conflicts with Labor Day weekend, we’ll be moving up our monthly orientation session one week in August.
Every week we pack and send books to more than 60 prisoners. If you’re interested in prison issues and would like to help make a significant difference in the lives of prisoners, we’re the place to be.
Join us Sunday, August 24, at 1pm. (Our volunteer orientations take place 1–2pm, right before our regular 2–5pm work session.) Get the details here. Of course, there are always other ways to get involved and help get books in the hands of women in prison. Looking forward to meeting you soon!
